With a good friend who was revisiting the place of his birth after many years. That made it all the more enjoyable. This is a great spot and was part of a good walk from Whitley Bay across to the Fish Dock.

Visible from far away, thus monument is a great place to remember the past. Even in the middle of winter the walk to get to see him is worth the effort.

This should be a must for anyone visiting this area. Lord Collingwood was important to the area and the monument is a good place to appreciate the views across the River Tyne. Look and enjoy. Appreciate the past.

This really is a very impressive monument to a great man. Well worth a visit not only is it a monument worth visiting, the views from here are amazing. Free car park right at the foot of the hill the monument is on.

If you go to Tynemouth Priory you should visit this monument, it is about a 10 minute walk from the Priory. Stunning views once you get there.
